Secrecy Goes Open Source, Assures File Encryption
Posted August 27, 2014 at 04:30 pm by Faiz Malkani
As some of you may remember, a while back we spoke about Secrecy, an effective file encryption app that allows you to secure files of your choosing, lest your phone get into the wrong hands or some tech-savvy friend gets snoopy. One qualm in particular that we had with Secrecy was that due to the app being closed source, there was no way for users to verify the file encryption and ensure that their files were truly secure, making them doubt the authenticity of the application and the security it promised.
However, XDA Senior Member Doplgangr, the developer of Secrecy understood the looming issue at hand, and to ensure users that their files were secure, and went ahead and open-sourced the app. This step was vital, given that private files and information was being entrusted to the app, and with the source code made public, users can ensure that the application lives up to its promise of security and AES256 encryption.
